Jets' walking wounded steadily improving

Maurice provides updates on Trouba, Hutchinson, Mason and Roslovic following Thursday's practice

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton /

WINNIPEG - With the full extent of Patrik Laine's injury now known as a bruise that will keep the Finnish winger out of the Winnipeg Jets line-up for four to 14 days, head coach Paul Maurice also updated the status of a number of other injured Jets.

Jacob Trouba, who left Sunday's win over the Dallas Stars with what was later diagnosed as a concussion, is continuing to make progress.

"He's been pretty darn near symptom free since day one," said Maurice. "We'll give that one a couple more days, and he'll start skating."

With Laine out, Jets lean on depth, versatility up front

Sniper to miss anywhere from four to 14 days with bruise

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton /

WINNIPEG - All season, versatility and depth have been important factors in how the Winnipeg Jets have dealt with injuries.

Now, with Patrik Laine out anywhere from four to 14 days with a bruise - the result of blocking an Alec Martinez slap shot on Tuesday night - the team will lean on its versatility yet again.

"He's such a big part of our team and our offence. Just the power play alone, that leaves a big hole," said Bryan Little. "He's been playing really well lately. Not just scoring goals, but doing everything well. The way he got hurt, he was blocking a shot for the team. It's tough to lose a guy, especially when he's playing like that, right now."

Laine bruised, but won't miss much time

"There's nothing broken," says Head Coach Paul Maurice

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

WINNIPEG - "There's nothing broken."

Head Coach Paul Maurice quelled the concern that has encapsulated the city over the past 48 hours, announcing Thursday that Patrik Laine has a bruise and miss at least a game or two after a blocking a shot with his left leg, but the injury is not serious and he'll be back playing "as soon as he feels comfortable" and the swelling subsides.

Mathieu Perreault: The Fireman

Fiesty, 5-foot-10 forward brings versatility to Jets' forward group

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton /

When Mathieu Perreault sees a loose puck, he's going to do anything he can to get it back.

And more often than not, the feisty 5-foot-10, 188-pound winger succeeds.

It doesn't matter who he's going into the corner with. He can be giving up over six inches in height or any number of pounds in weight, but that doesn't matter to the 30-year-old.

That's what Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice loves about this versatile, veteran forward.

"We've all seen the Perreault forecheck. It's hard and fast, and he comes back to the bench with half of his equipment," Maurice so famously said during the 2016-17 campaign. "That's his personality. It's in the room, and that's an important piece."

Hart of a Lion: Wheeler's career year has him in running for league MVP

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

When the news broke the Winnipeg Jets would be without their No. 1 centre for up to two months earlier this season, both captain and coach, admittedly, feared the worst.

"Terrified isn't the right word," a more relaxed Blake Wheeler said after his 'running mate,' Mark Scheifele returned, "but I was concerned about how it would work."

Paul Maurice, Wheeler's 22 teammates and the many thousands of Jets fans glued to their phones awaiting the prognosis the following day had a similar mindset.

The team had just come off an electric home-ice win over the Edmonton Oilers, were 10 games above .500 and were poised for a big second half.

Without Scheifele, though - the preeminent player in their stable of star talent - that task seemed all but impossible now, they thought.

Instead, they rattled off an 11-2-3 record and remained atop the Central Division standings during that time, thanks in large part to the play of their All-Star captain, who moved to the middle and served admirably in Scheifele's absence.

Laine leaves game with lower-body injury

Winger blocked a shot early in the second period vs. LA and did not return

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

WINNIPEG - Patrik Laine left Tuesday's game against the LA Kings and did not return with a lower-body injury.

Laine blocked a shot from Kings defenceman Alec Martinez early in the second period, hobbling off under his own power after the puck made contact with the inside of his left leg. Laine, who entered the night tied with Alex Ovechkin with a league-leading 43 goals, had to be helped to the dressing room after toughing it out on the bench for a few minutes following the incident.

Connor's two-goal game helps Jets to overtime win over Kings

Laine leaves game with lower-body injury, Maurice believes it's not "long term."

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton /

WINNIPEG - Kyle Connor was the only member of the Winnipeg Jets to beat Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jack Campbell on Tuesday night.

Thankfully for the Jets, he did it twice.

Connor's fifth multi-goal game of the season came at an opportune time, as his 26th of the campaign tied the game in the second period, and his 27th sealed the 2-1 overtime win for the Jets over the Kings.

"They're a tough team to play," Connor said of the Kings. "Getting the overtime winner felt good. These guys battled so hard and everybody was laying it on the line. (Eric Comrie) played well too. It was a great team win."
